Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are low-cost access networks built on cooperative routing over a backbone composed of stationary wireless routers. WMNs must deal with the highly unstable wireless medium. Thus, routing metrics and protocols are evolving by designing algorithms that consider link quality to choose the best routes. In this work, we analyze the(More)
Currently, there is a strong effort of the research community in rethinking the Internet architecture to cope with its current limitations and support new requirements. Many researchers conclude that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for all of the user and network-provider needs and, thus, advocate for a pluralist network architecture , which allows(More)
The current Internet architecture allows malicious nodes to disguise their origin during denial-of-service attacks with IP spoofing. A well-known solution to identify these nodes is IP traceback. In this paper, we introduce and analyze a lightweight single-packet IP trace-back system that does not store any data in the network core. The proposed system(More)
Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are emerging as a promising solution for ubiquitous Internet access with mobility support. In such networks, user mobility may lead to Internet gateway changes and, consequently, impact the performance of continuous media applications. In this article, we investigate the impact of user mobility on the performance of(More)
—We review the main challenges and survey promising techniques for network interconnection in the Internet of the future. To this end, we first discuss the shortcomings of the Internet's current model. Among them, many are consequence of unforeseen demands on the original Internet design such as: mobility, multihoming, multipath, and network scalability.(More)
— In this paper, we analyze the performance of the Load-Level-Based Admission Control mechanism (LLAC) for optical burst-switched networks in a multilink scenario. The goal of this mechanism is to differentiate the blocking probability of a given service class according to the network load and a class-associated parameter, called load level. For the(More)
